Vampire-Away Kale Chips

One of the local health food stores had a sample of garlicky kale chips out one day so I tried them. They were wonderful, but cost something like $5-6 for a small container. I bought a bunch of kale a couple days ago, so decided I had to replicate those chips. Mine are baked instead of raw because I don't have a dehydrator and raw vegetables are hard on my finicky stomach.

Vampire-Away Kale Chips

1 bunch green kale
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 275F.

Wash kale, then remove the ribs and tear or cut the leaves into bite-sized pieces.

In a large bowl, toss the kale with the olive oil, then with the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and salt. I found it was easiest to get an even coating by shaking it in a container with a lid, but tossing in a bowl also works.

Place kale on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crispy, stirring once halfway through.


  1. I have noticed that several of your recipes I would like to try have nutritional yeast as an ingredient. I checked with my allergy doctor and she said I should avoid nutritional yeast on my yeast free diet. Can you recommend a substitute for the nutritional yeast? What is its purpose in the recipe?

    1. There isn't a substitute for nutritional/brewers yeast. It plays a huge role in the recipes I put it in and gives them a cheesy taste as well as a good dose of B vitamins.
